Total raised from Wemoto's charity t-shirts now £65,000

 On Tuesday 19th March, at the official launch of the 2019 Isle of Man TT, Wemoto handed over a £16,590 cheque to the Manx Grand Prix Supporters Club.

The cheque was a result of the company's fundraising efforts in 2018. The money will help fund the MGPSC's life-saving helicopter ambulance, used during the Manx Grand Prix. It is also used to support injured riders and their families.

Wemoto began raising money for the club in 2015, through the sale of its exclusive Festival of Jurby T-shirts. A new t-shirt is designed in-house each year celebrating the late-August festival.

Now that its fourth fundraising year is complete, Wemoto is happy to announce that it has surpassed the £50,000 mark and has now raised £65,000 for the charity in total. It is grateful to everyone who has bought a t-shirt over the years and to those in the industry who’ve helped support the cause.

Wemoto’s 2019 T-shirt has recently been released. Complete with a print of a vintage racer at the famous Kate's Cottage - an iconic part of the Isle of Man Snaefell Mountain Course.

The T-shirts are available to buy at wemoto.com or in limited numbers at this year's Festival of Jurby. They are just £10 and all the profits raised go towards supporting racers on the Isle of Man.

Local Olympic athlete gets on her Triumph

Olympic athlete Aimee Fuller: “The first thing I did after the Winter Olympics was pass my motorcycle test!”

 

British snowboarder and Olympic athlete Aimee Fuller has partnered with Triumph Motorcycles to reveal the dedicated lifestyle of a successful professional athlete.

 

In the short insightful video, two-time Olympian and Triumph ambassador Aimee reveals her intense training regime and the focus required to stay at the top of her game and her sport.

 

In addition to an arduous training programme, Aimee recognises the importance of a healthy mind and uses her Triumph Street Twin to escape the stress of everyday life.

 

Describing the similarities between two-wheeled riding and being in the mountains, the Olympic snowboarder, said: “To physically just enjoy and ride, it’s the same feeling as when I snowboard. It’s escapism. The first thing I did after Sochi 2014 Olympics was pass my full motorcycle test.

 

“Going with my dad and grandad to motocross meets in Kent and Sussex was probably what got me hooked! I started racing motocross bikes from the age of 6 until 9 and finished 2nd in the British Champs.

 

“Since then I’ve done lots of trail riding, some more motocross but mostly spent time on my Triumph Street Twin. I love the way that it looks, rides and makes me feel. It’s absolutely perfect for commuting and to blow away the cobwebs.”

Help us catch a potential road killer


                            
MAG is offering up to £1,000 to catch a potential road killer.

MAG has announced a £1,000 reward for information leading to the 
successful prosecution of the individual responsible for a 'hit & run' 
incident near the Squires Café Bar in North Yorkshire, where a car 
driver left a seriously injured motorcyclist, Matthew Ramsden, lying on 
the road with his damaged motorcycle.

The incident occurred in Sherburn-in-Elmet. Police say that Matthew was 
travelling along the B1222, near Peckfield, on Sunday 6 January at 
around 4.40pm, when he collided with a car at the junction with the A63. 
The driver did not stop at the scene.

Castleford-based firm, West Riding Personal Financial Solutions, has 
also put up £1,000 for information leading to a prosecution. Police 
believe the car to be a silver saloon - possibly a VW or a Skoda - and 
it suffered severe rear bumper damage as a result of the collision.

Yorkshire MAG Representative Richard ‘Manny’ Manton describes this 
latest incident as a ‘line in the sand.’ He says: ‘the guilty driver 
showed no respect for the biker’s life or property – and also decided to 
evade the law instead of fulfilling a basic moral and legal 
responsibility as a road user.’

Manny continues: ‘we’re offering up to one thousand pounds for 
information leading to a successful prosecution because MAG isn’t going 
to stand by and tolerate blatant criminality on the highways of 
Yorkshire - or any other part of Britain. If you know who did this, and 
you don’t speak up, you’re protecting someone who can’t be trusted by 
you or anyone else. Help us get justice – and potentially pick up a 
thousand pounds for yourself. This offender isn’t fit to be on the 
roads. If they are not found, they can do it again - to you or someone 
you love.’

Please contact MAG on 01926 844 064 with any information. You can speak 
to us in confidence. We won’t reveal your identity – we just want the 
identity of a law-breaker too cowardly to stay at the scene of a serious 
accident where someone could have died.
